Robin Tarbet's practice is concerned with the physical materiality of everyday technology. Robin assumes the role of a folk science explorer, which leads him to dismantle, dissect, and distort everyday technologies and appliances. His work combines two–dimensional media, photography, printmaking and live film with three-dimensional sculptural assemblages. Aesthetically he examines the architectural and conceptual similarities of the built environment to the increasingly technological yet mysterious worlds within.
Robin studied for a BA in Fine Art at the Norwich School of Art and design, followed by a MA in Fine Art Printmaking at the Royal College of Art, London. He is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Foundation Studies at Kingston University, a Visiting Lecturer at Goldsmiths, and a Mentor with the charity Arts Emergency.
